Apple updates Developer app for WWDC, adds Mac version
Apple has updated its Apple Developer app, for the first time releasing a version for the Mac, just one week ahead of the kickoff of its annual (and first ever virtual) Worldwide Developers Conference.
Given that the Developer app will be the portal for this year’s online-only conference, the update doesn’t come as a surprise. It adds a handful of new features for the upcoming conference, including a Discover tab to help you more quickly find the latest news and information, a new browse interface with search capabilities, and the ability to download and favorite content so you can catch up with it later.
The design suggests that this is yet another Mac Catalyst app, à la the Podcasts and TV apps—it features the same sidebar-based interface and offers the same features as the iOS version.
The Developer app is available for free from the App Store, and is available for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.
